Becca's Brood

It been about 3 months since I got my chickens and I have fallen hard for them The first three I got from a breeder near me when they were 8 weeks old (Gunter, Olaf, and Astrid) all of these were supposed to be sexed females but of course Astrid had other plans. Only a month later I ordered 4 more chickens from McMurray Hatchery and when the box came in I got a lovely surprise, there were five in the box!   Astrid Astrid enjoys herding the chickens around, running back and forth between two mini flocks (Newer birds and older birds) He is a Buff Brahma rooster... read more

Thanks for viewing.                                 Jorjfdjungle read more

We handled them a lot since they were babies and now they all are extremely friendly and enjoy being held. When we call "laaaaaadies", they will all come running like mini dinosaurs. I'd like to introduce our 5 ladies, who are otherwise known as "The... read more
